Icon Collection Lipgloss in Dancing Queen (US $ 19): Similar to the lipstick formula, the gloss looks smooth and moisturizes. The product also offers high gloss and intensive coverage, so your lips appear plump and juicy. And while this can be used as a top coat over the lipstick, I liked to wear it alone. I found the warm beige tone looked better on its own than when mixed with the pink lipstick.
The downside, however, is that the gloss is a little too sticky for my taste. Every time I opened my mouth it looked like melted cheese was being torn apart. And, unfortunately, the product smears and smears easily throughout the day. Even as I wiped it off, I noticed that the gloss left a sticky texture – my lips stuck together in the same way that syrup or chewing gum stuck to a surface after you scraped it off.
Icon Collection Lip Liner in Notice Me: While lip liners are easy to screw up – they can either be too chalky, too plain, or too rough on the lips – Rinna Beauty’s is one that you should have in your arsenal. Not only does it offer extreme colors, but its slim oval shape also makes it easy to draw on a precise line. And because the liner is pigmented and has a pretty dusty rose shade, you can also fill your lips and wear it on your own.
Not only is the formula creamy, it glides effortlessly on, but is also long-lasting and smudge-free. Do you remember when I mentioned the bowl of spaghetti and meatballs? Well, the liner stopped and looked as alive as ever when I finished eating. And bonus: the liner comes with a sharpener that is secretly in the ground. A nice gesture! Unfortunately, the only way to get your hands on any of the liners is by purchasing a lip kit, as each is designed to complement the lipstick and gloss set.
